Date & Time
Stream M.C. ESCHER: JOURNEY INTO INFINITY with Gold Coast International Film Festival's Virtual Film Series! Available February 5 through March 5.
ABOUT THE FILM: Equal parts history, psychology, and psychedelia, Robin Lutz’s entertaining, eye-opening portrait gives us Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher through his own words and images: diary musings, excerpts from lectures, correspondence and more. Escher’s woodcuts, lithographs, and other print works appear in both original and playfully altered form.
Two of his sons, George (92) and Jan (80), reminisce about their parents while musician Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills & Nash)talks about Escher’s rediscovery in the 1970s. The film looks at Escher’s legacy: one can see tributes to his work in movies, in fiction, on posters, on tattoos, and elsewhere throughout our culture; indeed, few fine artists of the 20th century can lay claim to such popular appeal.
